Why Choose WBS?

I’d like to thank Nathan and the team at Wendy’s Broadcadst for all their help. They have been supplying me with custom cables, made to the highest standard over many year. The low profile connectors are hard to find, yet they normally ship the finished leads the day after ordering, often to studios or locations where I am filming and I’ve never had to ask for any adjustments or corrections; They are right first time, despite my requiring some unusual bespoke wiring. I’ve also benefited from real world advice about products and fault finding. Wendy’s Broadcast have made location sound far less stressful.
